Frank Myers Boggs
American, 1855-1926

At an early age, Frank Myers Boggs moved from Springfield, Ohio to live in New York City. His father worked in the publishing industry, and through this connection he got his first job at Harper’s magazine as a wood engraver when he was just seventeen. His ambitions grew beyond the world of illustrating, and four years later he went to Paris to pursue a career in stage design. However, finding no suitable apprenticeships, he enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and began studying painting under the famous Jean-Léon Gérôme.
